Easily the best work from Shizuo. As other reviewers have stated, this is encapsulates DHR in its purest form and assaults your senses withit. It's Better than any album Alec Empire put out and is equaled only by 'Bomb20 - Field Manual', but comparing the latter to 'Fuck Step' is pretty pointless seeing as they are so different.

It inspired me to get drum machines, sythths and an Cubase loaded Mega ST. Something I still do today, 13 years on, so for that it hold a special place for me.

I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to hear something original and raw, because it is both those things to the extreme.

R.I.P David, you will be missed. :-(

Fuck Step is rumoured to have been recorded at an acid party which got out of control. Whether that's true or not is open to debate, but it certainly sounds like it was!
Shizuo had a way of mashing up the Amen break which put him years ahead of his contemporaries. The 'tracks' merge into each other, the trademark bizarre samples kick in at bizarre moments and the distortion cannot be bettered.
DHR's finest hour.

David Hammer's "band" Fuck Step was possibly one of the most insane groups to have ever existed (what a embellishment, eh?). Their live shows involved a masterbating semi-closed girl singer, a mascot wearing a football uniform crashing into audience members, and the drug crazed wacko Hammer himself.

This DHR limited release (Fuck Step '98) is the closest one will get to the intensity of their live shows. It includes 17 untitled cuts that are all crazy, scattered, and brilliant; most include similar samples, some are remixes of previous songs, and some don't even sound like they're finished at all.

It's definitely my favorite release by DHR, as it is the closest they came to an artist capturing the anarchy and freedom they promised from their other releases. SHIZUO!!!
